the fiscal cliff deal represented progress but urged congress to raise the debt ceiling, saying it gives the government the ability to pay its existing bills. he said, we think we're getting some effect in lowering interest rates but saying it was still early yet. saying we have found it can be an effective tool but we'll continue to assess how effective and saying that could change over time. this comes in context of a debate on the federal reserve over the effectiveness of the additional quantitative easing and some concern about the negative impact. the felt, d, he said, has the ability to undo the policies before inflation becomes a problem. and then he was asked about the federal reserve enabling congress to spend a lot of money because it buys the government's debt, but he said it's not up to the fed to play games and tell congress what it should and should not be doing on its spending. and he added that the federal reserve has to follow its dual mandate. he was asked about question about his personal and he said, i try to get a lot of sleep and then, melissa, talking about social
